Abstract:The assessment of aircraft paint schemes requires predictions of the signature and detection of aircraft targets. When paints are semi-gloss or gloss, specular reflections of the sun can result in intense glints that make the aircraft susceptible to detection. Accurate modeling of glints requires… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The objective of this SBIR research effort is to investigate algorithms for mitigation of sensor saturation, including the effects of laser dazzlers, in mid-wave infrared (MWIR) cameras using advanced image-processing techniques. The optical irradiance present in dazzled imagery spans… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: We propose to fabricate a high performance signal and pump combiner for high-power fiber lasers and fiber amplifiers. We will use advanced glass micromachining processes that will alleviate the fabrication challenges associated with either tapered fused fiber couplers or side-pumped… more
Abstract:Virtual EM is proposing a solution for achieving electrically small high-efficiency VHF transmit antennas suitable for use on medium size Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). In the proposed approach, maximum use of the UAV"s airframe for the antenna improves radiation efficiency while dynamic… more
Abstract:Experienced shore-based technicians are not available to provide their expert technical assistance to a ship at sea, which is usually the most critical time when naval electronic systems issues occur. The current trend is that the experience, skill levels, and especially the numbers of on-site ship… more
Abstract:Carbon capture and storage is generally considered as a crucial component of any U.S. strategy for addressing the climate change problem. Carbon dioxide can be stored underground in geologic formations, or permanently bound into some abundant minerals via carbonation reactions. These options have… more
Abstract:Prestressing strands are the core constituents of prestressed concrete structures. Steel offers important advantages over the emerging classes of composite tendons in this application; susceptibility of prestressing steel to corrosion, however, is a concern. The market appeal of existing… more
Abstract:In a successful Phase I SBIR research effort the team of Solidica, Inc., Navmar Applied Sciences Corporation-Advanced Acoustics Sector (NASC-AAS), and Fabrisonic LLC identified opportunities for both 41% cost savings and +3 to +4 dB performance improvement in a slotted cylinder projector (SCP)… more
Abstract:The next generation of rare isotope beam facilities requires new and improved instrumentation to cope with the high-radiation environment associated with the interaction of high-power beams with matter. One essential piece of instrumentation that is needed is a precise, radiation-resistant, magnetic… more
Abstract:The nuclear security and safeguards community does not have an effective tool to track the location and quantities of radioactive material within facilities. This effort will result in a sensor that can provide precise locations and quantities of radioisotopes in complex measurement environments.… more
Abstract:Environmental sensor networks capable of taking data quickly enough to capture minutescale fluctuations and durable enough to capture these data for entire seasons provide essential information for studying the seasonal and annual effects of microbial activity across complete ecosystems. Distributed… more
Abstract:It is proposed to develop a 2.2mm diameter fiber-optic based sensor that measures both static and dynamic components of the cylinder pressure up to 350 bars over the frequency range of 0Hz to 20 kHz, operates at tip temperatures up to 450oC, and has the service life up to 20 thousands hours or 5… more
Abstract:The proposal is for the development an innovative technique to continuously determine, in real-time, the cylinder gas pressure in diesel engine cylinders. The technique is based on the electro-chemical phenomena of ionized species formatiion during the combustion process. The ionized species… more
Abstract:High material costs and high manufacturing costs have been identified as one of the critical barriers that are slowing the adoption of Solid State Lighting. A 2012 Department of Energy report estimated that Solid-State Lighting has the potential to reduce electric energy consumed by lighting from… more
Abstract:Superconducting nanowire photon detectors have enabled new scientific measurements and secure communication systems by improving the detection of near-infrared photons, a band that is traditionally problematic for semiconductor- and photomultiplier-based

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
